Assam entered the Guinness World Records with the largest Bihu dance performance



International Desk:
In what can be termed as one of the proudest moments for the people of Assam, the state on Thursday (April 13) created history as it set a  Guinness World Record for the largest Bihu dance performance at a single venue  created.
 At least 11,304 bihuwotis and dhulias (dancers and drummers) attended the grand event at Sarosjai Stadium in Guwahati.
 The event was earlier scheduled to be held on April 14 in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, but was held ahead of schedule.
 The state government led by Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had been preparing for this grand occasion for a long time.
 Practice sessions were held across the state to bring the best performers for the mega event with an aim to put the cultural heritage of Assam on the world map.
 CM Himanta Biswa Sarma had set a target for two world record attempts, one for the largest Bihu dance in a single frame and the other for the largest drummer contingent.
